Weah, Boakai contend in Liberia’s Presidential run-off

Image result for Weah, Boakai contend in Liberia's Presidential run-off

The two main contenders in Liberia’s presidential election run off, George Weah and Vice President, Joseph Boakai have voted.

Weah is squaring up against vice president Joseph Boakai, with both men promising a break with a heritage of poverty and corruption in a country where most citizens have no reliable electricity or clean drinking water.

They are bidding to succeed Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in a run-off vote delayed for over a month after Boakai and third-placed Charles Brumskine of the Liberty Party alleged widespread fraud in October’s first-round vote, a challenge that the Supreme Court rejected this month.
